Unchained Project2015 400

UnChained Project wants to mobilize advocates willing to provide awareness and support for survivors of child abuse living in silence in your community. Here's why;

  • 40 million children globally are abused each year1
  • 1 in 3 girls / 1 in 6 boys are sexually molested before age 171
  • Of 1.5 million U.S. runaways 85% are fleeing some form of abuse1
  • 6 reports of child abuse per minute in the U.S. = 61,000 reports to Child Protective services per week1
  • Approximately 20% of women and 5–10% of men report being sexually abused as children, while 25–50% of all children report being physically abused1
  • Adult survivors of child abuse often bury symptoms that break-through in their 20's to 40's causing debilitating personal conditions1
  • Of reported cases annually 48.5% are boys and 51.2% are females. Child abuse prefers no race, religion, ethnicity or sex above any other.1
  • Up to 45% of survivors attending a support group live below the poverty line1
  • 80% of young adults who suffered child abuse meet the criteria for at least one psychiatric disorder2
